WASHINGTON — President Biden on Friday telephoned the chief of the National Guard Bureau to express dismay after troops deployed to protect his inauguration were ordered a day earlier to rest in an unheated garage after being booted from the Capitol, administration officials said. Photographs of dozens of guard members resting in parking spaces created a public relations debacle in the first days of Mr. Biden’s term, with some governors demanding that troops from their states be sent home. In a telephone call with General Daniel R. Hokanson, the chief of the National Guard Bureau, Mr. Biden asked what he could do about the situation, the officials said. The two men also talked about Mr. Biden’s personal connection to the Guard; Mr. Biden’s son, Beau, who died of brain cancer in 2015, served as a Major in the Delaware Army National Guard. Officials said that the White House might also arrange a call with state officials to thank them for their state’s contributions to the deployment of more than 25,000 National Guard personnel to the nation’s capital to provide security ahead of and during the inauguration on Wednesday.
